Joao and his crew are amazing. We highly his landscaping company. Joao came out and shared his ideas and worked with us on how to landscape our backyard. He was very honest and direct about his ideas while working with us. He transformed our backyard. He put in beautiful walls and artistically placed plants and flowers. He also put in pavers so we could use it to park our car and rebuilt a patio that we had tried to put in ourselves. He is very creative and is truly dedicated to his work and art. We are extremely happy with our beautiful yard and we feel so lucky that we found Joao and his company.

I sincerely believe that Gira-Sol truly is "Unique" but would not be if not for the owner, "Luiz" (Joao Luiz Vieira de Castro). He is a fantastic "artist" "designer" and a "thinker". Just by talking to Luiz, I realized I wanted him to create my outdoor garden. I did not give Luiz any specific deadlines but said I would like to get the work done within a month. I told him he could do the work at his pace and between any other work he might come across.

Luiz built me a beautiful large outdoor water garden (pond) and also the surrounding stone walkway with stone retaining walls. It was a big job! His estimate was on the lower side but not lowest. However, I am convinced that not even the highest estimate contractor could have done such a beautiful job! He was thoughtful & methodical & did most of the creative work himself. The owner himself was doing the work! Luiz did not just hire some labor and disappear as I've seen other contractors do. I own many rental properties so I've had a lot of experience with a lot of contractors.

Luiz is an artist! Let him work his magic! Do not rush him with deadlines. Be patient and you will marvel at the final creation!
